Hi, Has anyone used the new Data app, in any serious way? I've installed the thing, with no problems, but the biggest problem is "How do you use the blessed thing". I'm a great fan of databases, and my Psion netBook, currently houses fourteen of the things. I've, in the past built, setup, managed and used many such. The Psion Data, I have to admit is one of the best flat databases I've ever come across. Endlessly configurable, neat, and user friendly. This Gemini database has me beat. As an app, it's one of the most opaque objects that i've ever come across. A database is just a set of listings of associated things. An address book is one of such, with fields for names, addresses, etc. In this app, I can generate a database, but from there it's as clear as mud as far as creating fields and populating those fields with data, and later organising the presentation in a logical and/or pleasing way, goes. any help, anyone?
In the Psion netBook, I can import or export data, and have in the past, done so. In the new app, the import data seems to be absent, although i can export the data that, so far, I've been unable to enter. Just to add to the frustration, having created a test database, I can find no way of deleting it. is this real?
